These people can also include the client, members of the client’s organization, and outside experts. The pur- pose of the review is to help the design team ensure that the design meets cli- ent and user requirements. A typical review begins with the team briefly discussing client and user requirements. The team then presents its design (or design alternatives, if a single design concept has not been decided on). The reviewers’ role is to eval- uate the design critically: ask questions, identify problems, and make sugges- tions. Design reviews are an important way for a team to get an informed outside perspective and to keep the project on track. In industry, they are often done at several points during a project. Each review helps designers to rethink and refine their concepts.
